3 Best Tips to Thicken Your Hair

The nutrients you consume day to day help fortify the hair follicle, something that goes beyond lathering it with exotic oils.

Let’s face it, we all want hair like the girls and guys in the shampoo adverts; hair that’s luscious, touchable, shiny and looks like there’s an imaginary fan whipping your hair delicately around your shoulders as you walk down the street. Then the reality check sets in as a good majority of us are facing hair thinning or loss due to stress, age, hormonal changes, side effects from medications, and medical conditions like lupus and anaemia; a scary and worrying though when you know hair only grows about half an inch a month. Luckily, there are ways to fix this and encourage a thicker and healthier mane.

What’s In Your Diet?

Do you notice when you eat poorly, your skin may break out and look sallow? Well what’s happening to your skin is also likely to affect other parts of your body that grow like your hair and nails. The nutrients you consume day to day help fortify the hair follicle, something that goes beyond lathering it with exotic oils, fancy-schmancy shampoos, serums or products from your beauty arsenal. The right intake will give you more leverage than your think; by eating a balanced, varied and protein rich diet, you’ll be giving your hair the TLC it deserves. So what are the best foods to promote thicker hair? Salmon is the number one fish to make any diet healthy; due to its richness in omega-3 fatty acids, Vitamin B12 and iron, it will restore shine into your tresses and reduce that irritating dry scalp. Eggs and chicken, which are high in protein will curb hair fall and breakage, nuts like almonds are full of zinc which will prevent loss, and lentils contain folic acid which is necessary in restoring the health of red blood cells that supply the skin and scalp with oxygen.

Treat It Gently

Are you straightening, blow-drying and applying heat rollers daily? If thicker, stronger hair is what you’re after it’s time to put down the tools. Heat centric products can put strain on your hair (that sizzle is not a good sound!) Use them sparingly or forego them altogether. If you absolutely must use them, try to do it once or twice a week. If you are also washing your hair daily, then you are not giving your scalp the time to produce the natural oils that coat your hair and make it healthy. For the best impact, wash your hair no more than three times a week. As your locks are more fragile when they are wet it’s also important to blot your hair dry with a soft towel rather than wringing it out.

Avoid Chemical Ridden Products

While chemical based shampoo, conditioners and styling products are effective at cleaning your hair, some contain sodium laurel and sulfates that strip the hair of their natural oils and cause the hair to weaken and fall out over time; not a good thing for people worried about hair loss! Choose products that are organic and derived from pure oils. If you’re looking for a natural quick fix to the appearance hair loss, don’t go past BioTHIK Australia , they uses keratin proteins to conceal balding and thinning areas making your mop look dramatically fuller in thirty seconds.

Tame Your Frizzy Hair

As they say, beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. It may be true that people have different ideas as to how the things look because they have different tastes. What appears to be beautiful to me may seem not so beautiful to you and vice versa. But every time I look in the mirror and see those frizzy hair, I cannot go out without worrying as to how people will see me, the reason exactly why there is Babybliss Pro, to tame the stubborn frizzy hair with blower, iron or roller sets, etc.
Most people like me who are born with curly or natural wavy hair tend to be rough with their hair because it is hard to manage. They do not know that vigorous hair combing and brushing damage the hair which makes it frizzier. One of the simplest ways to tame frizzy hair is by using good quality shampoo and conditioner and other hair hydrating products such as Kerastase. It improves water retention thus making the hair suppler, hydrated and softened. You can also try L’oreal, the trusted brand use by professionals. It has the ability to repair extremely dry and damaged hair making it more manageable.
Different people may have different concepts of beauty. But would not it be great if we are beautiful in every people’s eyes?

 

Hairstyles

RJ has very thin hair when she was born. I used headbands and hair clips to match her dress and she was very cute with those accessories.
My MIL told us to shave her hair to make it thick but Rhonnel did not want to. He said that it will grow eventually and it did. Now that she has long hair, the styles are just endless and tell you, I am a patient Mom that is very good with hair styling.

 

Gel for Your Frizzy, Unmanageable Hair

Hair is your crowning glory. It gives great form to your head thus makes you feel good and confident. Even  work-at-home Moms like me whose chores are neck-deep need to have trend-setting hair styles. But what if you have frizzy, unmanageable hair? A gel would help. Just apply a little amount of gel on your hair and style it to your desired look to give it substance. Your hair will remain elastic with special glow without the greasy feel and residue. Your husband would be excited to come home and see you with a well-set hair after each day of hard  work in the office.
